Pink Footed Goose

Today I finished my days work just 3 miles from Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire so I headed for a cuppa and a walk at the boating lake to see what was about.

From a distance I could see lots of Swans, Feral Pigeons, Mallards, Barnacle Geese and Greylag Geese but to my surprise a lone Pink Footed Goose was in with the Greylags on the lake. Don’t know how long it has been there but I certainly did not know about it!

Had a nice 30 minutes or so watching the bird at close quarters, sometimes about 4 feet away as it was being fed by others around the boating lake. Managed my best images so far of the species, see below.
